Small Projects Funding

A 1 hour Zoom workshop on using Instagram for creative and small businesses, followed by a 30 min Q&A.

About this Event

Got a project you’re really excited about but lacking the funding or know-how to get it off the ground?

Gem, our Studio Liaison and APS funding guru, will be running this 1hr entry-level workshop on applying for small project funding, followed by a 30min Q&A, as part of our ‘I want to be an artist mum!’ digital workshop series.

We will be looking at finding funding for small projects, particularly identifying appropriate funding schemes, and writing funding proposals. We will also focus some time on applying for The Leeds Inspired Small Grants Scheme in particular, for grants of between £100 and £1200, and which has deadlines on a monthly basis. The next deadline for Leeds Inspired Small Grants Scheme is 1 month after this workshop, is 1st April.

Gem will also be available the week following the workshop, in our Creative Cafe digital drop-in, (Wed 10th March, 2pm-6pm) for further questions, discussion or 1:1 support with an application or proposal.

Come along whether you have a project in mind, or just want to find out a bit more about arts funding generally. This workshop is particularly aimed at those living in or around Leeds, and as such some of the funding pots we’ll be discussing will be appropriate for projects around this area only.


This workshop, led by Gem(she/her), and facilitated by another APS staff member, will be conducted over Zoom and last 1 hour, followed by 30 minutes for Q&A. We are currently unable to offer the support of a BSL interpreter. If you require any extra support accessing the workshops, or have any questions please get in touch with us You can also tell us about any access requirements you have via a form we will send out with your email confirmation. Whilst we are currently limited by funding constraints this is something that we are looking to develop and improve and we are always keen to hear how we can do better.

This event is suitable for 18+ only.

If you have missed out on a ticket for this workshop but wanted to take part, please do get in touch as we will look to run more of these workshops if there is an audience for it.
